TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- An oral history of the tornado that devastated Tuscaloosa and the surrounding area on April 27, 2011, will be exhibited later this month at the Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum.

The exhibit, "Listening to the Storm: A Natural Disaster in Retrospective," will offer first-hand accounts of first responders, volunteers and survivors from April 23-June 7.

Museum director Shaina Strom said the exhibit speaks to the devastation of the storms, how far the community has come in the past two years and looks ahead to its future.

She tells The Tuscaloosa News that 50 to 60 accounts have been recorded, but about 25 will be part of the actual exhibit. The remainder will be stored in an archive. Those wishing to contribute an account are asked to schedule an appointment.
